Monday morning-week 2

Our Sunday afternoon outing-finally an afternoon without rain!

They LOVE to GO!!

brotherly love

This is what Isaiah thought of the Sunday paper-makes a great easel!!

2 happy boys, and one holding his own bottle!

Are you thirsty???

We have had a wonderful stay in Taiwan, but we are soooo ready to come home!

Isaiah is doing very well, starting to show a bit more personality, loves his little brother, starting to get into a bit of trouble, and still sleeping very well.

Isaac has just come leaps and bounds in the last couple days.

He is kicking his legs all the time, and starting to move his legs when he scoots along the floor-almost crawling-I can't believe how much he has changed in such a short time. He is holding his bottle now, smiling all the time, and watches for momma all the time. He is literally into everything, and we are loving it.
His eyes are just glowing, and he is so attentive and observant of everything around him. Chuck keeps saying, it is not even the same kid!!
We are very blessed. Now, if the flight goes smoothly, we get through immigration in good time, and make our connecting flight back to Minneapolis in the 2 1/2 hours we have once we land, we will be thrilled!!
Probably one of the highlights of our weekend was meeting the family who adopted the 4 sisters we fell in love with on the Gladney board last April, 2009. I have to ask permission from Mom and Dad before I put a picture on, but hopefully that will be later this week. Boy, are they BUSY!!! They have a daugher adopted from China 3 years ago, so they have 5 girls under the age of 6!! But do they feel blessed!!

Time to finish packing, and get the boys down for a morning nap-Then we are off to the Handicraft Mall for a few t-shirts, and then off to the airport!!

I love seeing your two boys together! It's amazing what a difference a couple of days make - I'm so happy to hear that they're settling in and showing their little personalities more.

Have a safe and uneventful trip back! I can't wait for all of the kids to meet each other at last!!
